Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules. How many of you knows that a contributor does not have to do corrections or transfers. How many of you knows that Find A Grave have a Right to Privacy Act?

All a contributor has to do is to invoke this privacy act and the contributor will no longer receive any corrections or transfers e-mails. Find A Grave DOSE NOT demand corrections or tranfers be done. They ask contributors to consider doing them to improve memorials and provided more information for researchers.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

Joseph Walker HouK (X)
Check your Joseph Walker Houk on Find A Grave at Mineral Creek. You will notice there is another Joseph Walker HouX. I knew this family, and Houx is the correct spelling of the name. You might check others you entered as Houk, and will probably want to update to the correct spelling. I'm looking at stones for Bernice Houx, Fannie Neil Houx, Jolee Frances Houx, Joseph, Joseph Lee Houx and wife Alice. Thanx for checking this out.

Kenneth was my mother's uncle...the reason I am leaving you a message, is first to thank you for posting this picture of Kenneth, and also, to let you know he died in 1947. He was born 28 Feb 1903 to Andrew Jenkins McChesney and Olive Anna Briscoe, and died 9 April 1947 in Los Angeles county hospital in California.
Thanks again, and I appreciate all you do!!

RE: Duplicate memorials
I deleted my memorials for Geraldine Holland Rode and Harry "Bud" Rode since Find a Grave never responded to my request to merge. I have also sent you edits to add relationship links.

Thank you for your message. Yikes, I didn't know I created two same memorials for the above person. I deleted the one that had unknown dates. I believe I was having computer problems that day. Thank you so much for helping me out. I really do appreciate people like you keeping me on my toes lol :-) Have a blessed day.

Hi Richard,
I just got an E about my duplicate entry for this man in Mineral Creek Cemetery. Since my entry has more info than yours, and you have the stone, would you like to copy my info (from his obit) and then I'll delete mine?

Nora Myrtle Cathcart
Hello, Nora Myrtle is the daughter of Charles and Della (Parker) Cathcart. Dalla' parents were William and Mary Parker. I am trying to determine if they are the correct William and Mary in my tree. My William was son of Bazil and Naomi (Risley) Parker. Do you know anything about any of these people? Bazil is my 3rd great grand uncle on my fathers side.
